California Governor Gavin Newsom is threatening kidnapping charges for Florida Governor Ron DeSantis for his recent migrant flights to Sacramento, California.
Newsom called DeSantis a “small, pathetic man” and shared a screenshot of California’s legal code on kidnapping.
.@RonDeSantis you small, pathetic man.
This isn't Martha's Vineyard.

From Yahoo News:
The first planeload of more than a dozen migrants, originally from Colombia and Venezuela, arrived in Sacramento on Friday.
They had crossed the United States border into Texas and were transported to New Mexico before boarding a plane.
California Attorney General Rob Bonta said his office was “evaluating potential criminal or civil action against those who transported or arranged for the transport of these vulnerable immigrants.”
“State-sanctioned kidnapping is not a public policy choice, it is immoral and disgusting,” he said in a statement.
According to The New York Times, a second planeload of migrants arrived Monday.
DeSantis’ office has not responded to inquiries about the flights.

The Democrats are absolutely FURIOUS that @RonDeSantis might send a handful of illegals to…Democrats’ “Sanctuary Cities”.
So if it’s a strain on them, what is it to the (Red) border states that get more than 99%?
Could they have…an agenda here? https://t.co/OmpCD5MhBp
